You’ll need a steady hand and nerves of steel to conquer the 200 challenges on offer in the tricky physics-based puzzler Art of Balance, available to download from Nintendo eShop on Wii U.
The aim of the game is simple: carefully balance the blocks to create a sturdy stack, with intuitive touch controls on the Wii U GamePad giving you total placement precision. Use your equilibrium expertise to pile up all manner of different shapes, including some with special properties that will really test the grey matter. You don’t have to go it alone though: up to four other players can each grab a Wii Remote controller and help you out in a unique five-player co-operative experience.
If head-to-head puzzling is more your bag, challenge a friend at home in split-screen competitive play, or go online to find an opponent. Pack your sofa with brainy buddies and take on another team in four-versus-four online multiplayer, where each team solves puzzles in parallel. Will your living room triumph?
Hone your skills in additional challenge modes as you build the tallest tower you can, solve demanding balance challenges, or go against the clock, unlocking awards along the way. See how you stack up against other players around the world in Endurance Mode’s online leaderboards: a true test for any aspiring block master.
